Bob leads a team of talented, knowledgeable managers that has a wealth of combined experience.
  • Rumble Strip Program
    Roadway departure fatalities are a serious and often preventable problem. The Federal Highway Administration reports that 54 percent of all highway fatalities in the U.S. are caused by drivers leaving their lane of travel. Our before and after crash analysis found that head-on fatalities were reduced by 40 percent with the installation of centerline rumble strips.
    Rumble strips are grooved patterns that make a rumbling sound and physical vibration that immediately warns inattentive drivers that they’re leaving their driving lane. Rumble strips allow drivers to self-correct and avoid a crash. Learn more about our centerline and shoulder rumble strip program, and why we call rumble strips, “the sound of safety.”
  • Evaluating Urban Design Standards and Guidance
    The Oregon Department of Transportation Urban Design Initiative seeks to align planning and design work for urban transportation projects, by developing comprehensive design standards and guidance to address the unique needs of urban environments.
    This effort considers all modes of transportation including motor vehicle, public transit, pedestrian, bicycle, and rail. The Urban Design Initiative also supports the implementation of design manual updates outlined in the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
    Development and implementation of this initiative will be ongoing from June 2016 through June 2018.
